Narrative:XW218 was part of a three ship formation and had landed and off loaded its troops near Taji. XW218 came in too close to XV211 and their main rotors meshed together creating debris and severing the tail boom of XW218, which rolled over and came to rest on its RH side. XW211 remained upright but suffered severe damage.
